My Bloody Valentine will make their long-awaited return to the U.S. stage at the New York version of the All Tomorrow's Parties festival, to be held in Monticello, NY, on September 19-21. MBV will also curate the fest. So far, frontman Kevin Shields has recruited four artists to perform classic records in their entirety, with Tortoise's Millions Now Living Will Never Die, Built to Spill's Perfect From Now On, Thurston Moore's solo Psychic Hearts and the Meat Puppets' II getting the full album treatment. Other MBV-approved bands performing are Shellac, Autolux, Mogwai and more. The ATP show would mark MBV's U.S. concert since July 1992. The band will also reportedly add six to eight more shows. Tickets for the event at the not-exactly-mammoth Kutshers Country Club in Monticello go on sale Friday at ATPFestival.com.
